    You don’t get the feeling that these guys are in it for the good of the country. It’s for the good of themselves. I know it’s entirely different but I wish there were a Jed Bartlett-style candidate. Fat chance

        More fictional candidates for president. Charlton Hestno’s guy from Planet Of The Apes versus Cathy from Wuthering Heights.

    is it two men and a Baby where Ted Danson wears that mask acting like the priest? Looks like Duffy found the mask in pic 3.

    Is it that time of year again ?
    There are certain immovable dates in one’s social calendar.
    Ascot,the Grand National,Wimbledon and the National Ploughing Championships.
    Up in Tullamore the demi-monde of Irish high society gather in a field to watch someone ploughing.
    Including you know who ….

    Him in his boots make him all Robin Hood looking, though he’s kinda the opposite of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor….

    1. Bertie Blenkinsop

      Old joke alert…..
      His ma got on a bus with him when he was a baby.
      The bus driver said:
      ‘Jaysus, that’s the ugliest baby I’ve ever seen!’
      His ma walked to the back of the bus and sits down, fuming.
      She says to the fella beside her
      ‘That bloody driver just insulted me!’
      The man says: ‘Dont stand for it.
      Go up there and tell him off.
      Go on love, I’ll hold your monkey for you.”

        Classic is not old, it’s classic.

        1-1, Bertie. Hoping they make ’em crumble and I look stupid. What ye thinking?

            You may say I’m a dreamer….

            I’m quoting John Lennon, that seems to go down well around here :)

            tbh, I’m hoping Liverpool win the league this year, but fear that won’t happen with an extended CL run

            It’s a long time since they’ve won a trophy of any description so I’ll settle for anything at this stage and be mightily pleased into the bargain.
